Washington (Special). Raleigh's
delegation that came to the National
capital to intercede with the war de
partment in an effort to have 'Camp
Polk made permanent; returned -with
little of the confidence they carried
back when they came here to bid for
the tank corps training school. The
war department glinted to the visitors
that only one tank camp would be
maintained in the United States and
that would possibly be located near
the Mexican border.
In connection with the policy as to
the retention cf camps and canton
ments, Secretary Baker, in a state
ment said: '
"Under the regular army legislation,
as it was prior to the emergency legis-
Jation of this war, there is authority ; mainly because of the superior qual

army and have them as a nucleus to
be used as the basis of any subsequent
army that the Congress may author

be abandoned speedily," the Secretary
said. "The first ones to be discontin

LESSON TOR DECEMBER 1
THE STORY OF JOSEPH.
LESSON TEXT-Genesis Si :1S-2S.
GOLDEN TEXT Hatred atirrh up
strifes, but lov covreth up ail trans
gressions. Proverbs 10:12.
DEVOTIONAL READING Psalms 4.
ADDITIONAL MATERIAL Genesis 37:
i j0.eDh the Well.Beloverf Son
Joseph was Jacob's favorite eon.
This was due partly to the fact that
he ras the on of the wife of his first
love and the son of hs old age. but
perior position and more respectabla
clothes. That Jacob should feel par
tial toward Joseph, perhaps, was un
avoidable, but that he should manifest
it was xtremely unwise. Serious
trouble vrill always result from par
tiality being shown toward children.
His brethren's intense hatred .. burst
forth upon binK This feeling was in
tensified by his pure life and byhi.1
testimony among them because of their
j evil deeds. .losiah is a type of Christ.
He was living in, fellowship wilh
his father at Hebron (37:14);
Christ was with the Father be
fore coming into the world (John
10 :28) ; Joseph was the beloved son
(Genesis 37 :3) ; -Christ was the be
loved Son of God (Matthew 3:17); Jo
seph was hated by his brethren (Gene
sis 37:4); Christ was hated by his
brethren (John 15:24); Joseph was
envied by his brethren (Genesis 37?11) ;
Christ was delivered up through envy
(Mark 1.1 :1t'). J
II. Joseph's Dreams (37:5-11).
1. His brothers' sheaves bowing in
j obeisance to his.
Thij was rightly interpreted by them
to mean their humble obedience to
him. This intensified their hatred.
2. The sun, moon and eleven stars
rendering obeisance to him.
Tlfis dream is wider in its applica-
tion. The eleven stars arc identical
with the eleven sheaves. The sun urfd
moon, as rightly interpreted by his fa
ther, represented his father and moth
er as rendering obeisance to him.
III. Jo&eph Sent by His-Father on a
j Mission of Mercy tm His Brethren (v.
j His brethren nad gone to hhechem,
j about fifty miles distant from Hebron,
whore was abundance of pasture for
tbwr Hocks. Jacob btecame anxious

brethren, he willingly responded, "Here
